Developing themes and imagery that celebrate the everyday, James Joyce works in a range of media creating paintings, screenprinted editions, drawings and sculptural pieces. As a result of his exploration of imagery, typographic forms and applied graphics, Joyce has garnered a following around the world and has been featured in numerous books, magazines and awards annuals. His bold and witty approach to image making regularly attracts commissions from a wide range of global clients including Apple, Nike, Jil Sander, The Guardian, and Wallpaper* and he is often invited to collaborate with brands to create bespoke and exclusive signature products.
He has recently completed creating the iconic visuals for A History Of The World in 100 Modern Objects with The Sunday Times Style magazine and is a regular contributor to The New York Times.
James exhibited a video installation piece at Banksy’s last art show ‘Dismaland’ alongside a number of other international artists including Damien Hirst and Jenny Holzer. His work has been exhibited in various shows in both London and New York, and his paintings are held in a number of private collections including the Soho House Group collection and that of celebrated restaurateur and contemporary British art collector Mark Hix.
Born in Wolverhampton, England, Joyce studied at Walsall College of Art and Kingston University. He now lives and works in London.
